Stripes on Stripes

SAN_FRANCISCO_STRIPES_1
        Sunnies / Shoes / Bag (Vintage Coach)- Options here and here Stripes are fairly innocuous when it comes to prints and patterns and because of this, can be treated like a neutral. They can be mixed with florals, dots, solids, etc. to add more dimension to a look. After finding this easy breezy shirt dress, I decided to mix it with an old sweater (aka an over sized long sleeve tunic)  in a different stripe for an interesting contrast. For this look, I went with black/white and black/ivory on top (similar here), but a colored stripe with white can work too! The dress is a recent purchase from Zara, though it is not available online. I found great striped options from Burberry, Fred Perry...

Plaid Slip Dress

PLAID_SLIP_SAN_FRANCISCO_2
        When we went to SF we were hoping to get the full San Francisco treatment, including the year round cool weather. We packed new looks that were too warm to wear in NY and looked forward to getting a head start on shooting fall styles. As fate would have it, our first time in the Golden City was blessed with an off-the-charts heat wave. This plaid slip was the first look we were going to update with some new layers, but it ended up being the perfect choice sans everything but the bralette for 105 degree heat. While this one was from Zara last year, I've linked the bralette and a few great dress options below! Slips: Vince / Adaptation / K/lab / Corey...

Everlane Lab SF

EVERLANE_STRIPE_CHINO_1
  Top / Pants / Flats Though we were disappointed we missed the release of their jeans by just a few days, our first stop when we got to San Francisco was to the Everlane Lab in the heart of the Mission District. Everlane has been a Twinseperable favorite for some time, but we had only ever ordered online.  I had such a blast styling some of my favorite pieces in person, and the amazing gals running the shop were so incredibly kind and helpful.       Top / Pants / Shoes These cropped pants were probably my favorite bottoms of the day, but keep in mind they run quite big. I'm typically a 6/8 (closer to an 8), and these...

Rock On

Rock_Tee_Tailored_Shorts
  Sunnies / Shirt (Similar here) / Shorts (Similar sale version here) / Shoes /Bag (Old)- Similar here   Fortunately, we both work in fields that don't require a "business casual" dress code. I have never been a fan of suits (blazers with jeans, excluded), so working for a company that allows stylish, casual dress, is a blessing. After attending the Classic East concert, which we expanded upon here, the ultimate test was seeing if I could dress up one of the many rock tees we got, into a work appropriate ensemble. The Doobie Brothers had a heather grey ground, The Eagles had a powder blue ground, and the event tee was charcoal, so opting for the black tee was the...

Kimono Casual

Zara_Kimono_Look_4
      Last year, we featured a more authentic kimono here, but have been fawning over any kimono inspired layering pieces all season long. The one pictured is from Zara, but no longer online (possibly still avail. in stores). Two other options are linked below! These J brand jeans are also no longer available, but I found a similar pair on Amazon. Anything that can immediately upgrade my favorite  basics (jeans and a solid tee or tank), with little to no extra effort is a win in my book. It doesn't hurt that these new Jam + Rico pom earrings match SO WELL. Check out our fun earring edit here. Find links to shop below and comment if you're into this trend!   ...

Earring Edit

Tassel_Earring_Edit
Tassels and fringe have been trending on everything from shoes, to bags, to clothes, to jewelry. Fun textures and bright pops of color are easy ways to update warm weather basics. Having worn the same silver stud earrings every day since I was 17, I was hesitant to try anything more adventurous. Earrings have never been an accessory I felt like experimenting with...

A Classic Look

Reformation_J_Brand_Karen_Walker_5
          Theres something refreshing in wearing a very simple look. It takes less effort and always looks classic and sophisticated without trying too hard. I had originally layered this top over a white tee, and played around with a maxi skirt among other combos, but this basic pairing ended up feeling right. This bag is an amazing hand me down from our Momager, but any mini top handle bag would do the trick (see one of my favorites below). Pairing crop flare jeans with a low block heel is an easy way to elevate your denim and this specific pair is on sale and super affordable right now.   Reformation / J Brand (Similar here and here) / Michael...

Live-in Linen

Live_in_linen
        A version of this linen outfit was my lazy/casual 4th of July cover up, and never did I think I'd make a look out of it. I've had these pieces forever and my mother and aunt had them forever before me, but they've always seemed more lounge-y and "off-duty" to me. I was reminded just how perfect they are for summer when it exceeded 90 degrees and there was NOTHING else I wanted to wear. Unfortunately, the hat and linens are hand me downs, but I scoured the internet for similar pieces. See below! Hat (Vintage)- Similar here / Sunglasses- Crap Eyewear / Top (Vintage)- Similar here, here and here / Pants (Old)- Similar here / Shoes- Marc Fisher...

Black + White

      If you're looking for an update to your favorite basic, this Aritzia top is it. I'm still undecided about the corset layering trend, but I love the way this tube top (also very cute alone) looks over our go-to reformation tee. Its simple and flattering and the perfect piece to pair with black joggers and reflective sunnies. Would you layer like this? Leave your comments below!
